Little Lies Kindle Edition
I don’t want you.
You mean nothing to me.
I never loved you.
I turned my words into swords.
And I cut her down. Shoved the blade in and watched her fall.
I said I’d never hurt her and I did.
Years later I’m faced with all the little lies, the untruths, the false realities, the damage I inflicted when all I wanted was to indulge in my obsession.
Lavender Waters is the princess in the tower. Even her name is the thing fairy tales are made of.
I used to be the one who saved her.
Over and over again.
But I don’t want to save her anymore.
I just want to pretend the lies are still the truth.
*Little Lies is a 105k standalone new adult romance.

Lavender has transferred to college in Chicago in her sophomore year. She is living with her brothers and constantly surrounded by her cousins and family friends. She and Kody used to be close. He was her saviour and safe place and she developed an unhealthy attachment to him. Kody suffers from anxiety too but has learned to deal with it more effectively. An incident 2 years ago means that the two are not friends anymore but rather enemies. When there is a fire at Kody’s house he moves in to the spare room in Maverick, River and Lavender’s house and they are forced to deal with the events of their past.
I devoured this book in one day! It’s an angsty slow burn but when we get there... oh my goodness. So hot! The flashbacks will rip your heart out but also make to appreciate the adults that Lavender and Kody become (even if Kody is frustrating at times) It was great to see how much Lavender has grown. It is sometimes difficult to reconcile the sweet little boy with the grown up Kody but he has his reasons for being the way he is. I really loved that Lavender ALWAYS calls Kody, Kodiak.
I really liked the relationship between Lavender and Violet and I absolutely loved Mav. He’s the only one who really treats Lavender like he treats everyone else and he’s just hilarious. I have been looking forward to this book since I read A Secret for a Secret. I love the second generation and I’m excited for more stories from these characters. Although I did feel connected to these characters through the Pucked and All In series, Little Lies can definitely be read as a stand alone.
Also, oh my... this cover 🔥🔥🔥
Fans of Saffron Kent would also enjoy this read, as it has the same angsty feel as most of her work
Unfortunately for me there was a lot of hype for this story, and I delayed reading it due to this, but I do think I probably should have passed on this one. I didn’t have a connection with the main characters which is extremely important for me when reading. Even though Lavender and Kodiak have a long history, they just seem toxic for each other and to the point of obsessive, rather than a sweet dependency which might have been what was trying to be achieved.
There’s a lot that I didn’t like about the story, but it slightly redeemed itself a little after the halfway mark, as it was almost like reading a completely different story and the storyline finally started to flow. What I didn’t really like though was at this point Lavender’s character flips, she changes and it would have worked better if this is who she was earlier in the story. This is just my personal opinion, and I know many seemed to have love the story, but for me the story overall was disappointing and I felt like the it was just a wishy washy jumble. The only reason this gets a 3 star, is because once you get through chapter 22 the story finally flows and answers appear.
Whilst this is a spin off from our favourites in both the Pucked and All In series of books, and we do get to see our favourite characters come back, this next generation is much more raw and serious than what readers are used to from Helena.
Lavender was an awesome character. She really came into her own by the end of this book, and stood her ground against all the protective people around her. Those people had reason, yes, but she needed to do what was right for her. Lavender's past history, particularly the bits with Kody, are big things that were really interesting, although sometimes hard, to read about.
Kody and Lavender both have their own personal issues to deal with, but you can feel the tension pouring off the pages between them. I was determined to get to the bottom of their story, and extremely curious to see how it was going to play out.
There are some other great characters in this who I can't wait to read about - the friends and family who surround Lavender and Kody - and I really look forward to what comes next in this series. Highly recommend.

This one is filled with angst, drama, family, loyalty and friendship. With the perfect mix of past and present its a storyline that captures your attention from beginning to end and has you alternating between laughing and crying. Honestly my heart completely broke for Lavender and everything she had gone through.
Lavender is nothing like her parents, she's shy as a youngster, suffering with anxiety. With older brothers and their extended family she has a lot of over protective people surrounding her which is not always a good thing.
Kodiak has always felt connected to Lavender. When they were kids he always felt he was her protector. After their parents step in and separate them they drift apart and when they are older become enemies. Kodiak becomes the ultimate alpha as***ole when it comes to Lavender now she is at the same college as them.
As you read more of the past story you get to understand why Kodiak is the way he is. He has sky high walls that only Lavender will be able to tear own eventually but only once he shows her that he is worth it.
This book got me out of a reading funk and once i started i devoured it within a day. It was like a family reunion seeing some of my favourite characters from previous books that i have honestly missed. I can't wait to read the next book in the series
Helena writes emotion to carry you along on the journey with the characters. Tears were spilled more than once, but she also does some of the best comedic moments I've every read.
Lavender and Kodiak have a bond stronger than they understand at 4 and 6. They are beyond best friends, they share a deep connection and understating of each other.
But lives change whether you want them to or not. Now 19 & 21 they are both at university. Lavender is living on jock row with her bothers River & Maverick. Kodiak is just down the street with her cousin BJ Ballistic, and Quinn Romero. They haven't seen each other in over 2 years when their relationship went from bad to worse and hearts were broken.
Lavender is still the shy girl we met in the All In series but she grown in to sassy, strong young woman who knows what she wants and has learnt how to manage her anxiety. And chanel her determination to get it.
Kodiak on the other hand seems lost, hiding his torment with perfect grades, hockey and an abrasive personality. There were times I wanted to punch his pretty face, but as the story developed his pain became evident to more then just the reader.
I may can't recommend this book highly enough, it's the perfect mix of angst, passion and comedy. Sometimes all at once.
Ps duct tape its bloody hot!
Lots of Helena's other book characters play a big part and it was great catching up, Kodiaks parents were from another book too. There's tons of kids to read about, some we met, Maverick, Aiden, the twins. Lots of great potential stories. Please Helena. you're my go to author, can't wait for your next one.
